I wonder how much it cost to host the conference and what real benefit
to mankind will come of it.
Does that mean it is no longer on the itinery for the 'future' trip to outer space?
I mean, what real effect on humanity does it have, apart from trashing millions of library books and confusing school lessons for years to come.
